Finally Friday!!!

I have said it before and I will say it again, Friday is my favortie day of the week. And its been a lonnnnnnnnnnngggggggg week. We have had registration at school all week and thats all I have been doing. I worked a little over every day and I hope I can leave a few hours early today. We had a nice front come through yesterday, no rain in my part of the state, but it sure has cooled down the scorching temps we have had all week. The week-end is suppose to be very nice and not hot at all, looking forward to that.
The picture above is from my Art Journal. I have tried to work in it for a few brief minutes every night the past several weeks. It helps to keep my creative juices flowing even when I don't have much time to do any thing at all.
Last week I recieved a wonderful package in the mail from one of my close friends and very creative blogger bud Jeanie. She sent me a great book called "Caring for your parents". I have been reading on it and it does have some wonderful info in it. She also sent me the cutest ATC below.
I Love them both, Jeanie! Thank you for always brightening my day with your wonderful packages that you send to me. Next week you will be getting package from me for your birthday.
Yesterday I came home to a wonderful package in the mail. It was from the incredibily artistic blogger bud Shelley. She sent me a RAK(random act of kindness). Inside was 2 very wonderful ATCs. I LOVED them both. Below are pics of them.

I Love both of them! Thanks Shelley for making my day yesterday!!!
I also recieved some RAKS from another friend of mine who is in one of my Yahoo ATC groups. Her name is Susan and she also makes some incredible ATCS as you can see below.

I feel so lucky to have such Loving and Thoughtful friends in my life. Some of them I have never met in person but yet I feel like I have known them forever. They have touched my life with so much kindness and have sent such love and support to me through this very rough time have had this year. It brings tears to my eyes when I think about how much your Love has meant to me.
I have been wanting to post some of my Art Journal pictures lately so I will load up a few more of them. They are just so random and I just go with what I like at the time. I don't have to put alot of thought into the pages and thats a good thing because when I get a free moment or two my brain is pretty scrambled, I guess thats why I like doing the journal pages. Below are a few more of them.

I have more pages but alot of them I have actually put some of my private thoughts on and I will keep them private as I was going through some rough times and needed to write about it.
I sure hope every one has had a wonderful week. And I do hope you all have a great week-end.
I know I will because I will not have to go work on the other house. I talked to my realtor yesterday and she is going to be showing it to several potential buyers this week-end. Wish us Luck! Much Love to you all!

Your journal pages are great! I need to be doing that, making a little time for art as much as possible. Had good intentions but they have fallen by the wayside. You've received some beautiful atc's! I'm sure that brightened the days! Hope you enjoy your weekend and will send a prayer up about your house.

I have so many things I've wanted to do! You are doing so much better than I am. I miss my creative time. I am going to help my mom with something she is doing on Sunday so that will be fun! We are going to Coutney's for a Stampin up thing. The new book comes out on the 11th.

Miss you! oxox

Your journal pages are just great. I always like your art anyway but since I'm having such a time with my art journal, I notice everyone else's.

I'll send you some good thought about selling your house....and I'll cross my fingers, toes, eyes, and anything else I can manage!!

Omigosh, all of these ATCs that you received are just gorgeous! So much talent out there:-) I've received a few from dear blogging friends as well and I'll treasure them always. Your journal pages are also beautiful, what a great idea! Best of luck with trying to sell your house!! xoxo

The Journal is really nice. I hope all is going well for you and family. I think about you everyday.

You've had GLORIOUS mail! How fun! And I absolutely am wild about the journal pages. I long to create an art journal. This is good inspiration.

I loved peeking at your journal pages and am so glad I don't make them. I just don't used that time for journaling and it is fun to see others doing such a good job of something I would so botch. Not my thing.

Isn't it odd that the awful, mundane and necessary keep us sane at the same time. Odd thing that, but ahhhhh! When the weekend comes. . .

Oh...I like your art journal. I'm doing one too. Fun isn't it? Some days a little art is all you need to make the world a bit easier to handle. Love you Beth!
